President & CEO, Photographer & Videographer
Chris Craig first picked up a camcorder at the age of ten. From then on, Chris knew that his destiny was to share his vision with the world through the lens of a camera.
Chris lends his keen eye and intuitive timing to every project as he constantly strives to capture that perfect shot.
In his thirty plus years as a professional photographer, Chris has built a diverse and vivid portfolio of wildlife pictures, fashion photography and corporate imagery that has been used in numerous print advertisements, magazines and published books.
His career as a videographer has allowed him to film black bears alongside the likes of Dr. Lynn Rogers (Discovery Channel) and direct documentaries and training videos for billion-dollar corporations.
Whether he has to stand fifteen feet from a hungry, wild bear or film out of a moving helicopter, Chris will find the shot or footage that your project needs.
Chris is the proud father of 5 children and grandfather of 5 grandchildren. In addition to King Oak, Chris has owned and operated a variety of businesses over the years, his most recent being ProTrain360: an online training company for the gas and oil sector.
As President & CEO, Chris is personable, approachable and wholly committed to client satisfaction. Chris is driven to see King Oak grow and branch out into other streams of media production.

Design & Development
Andrew Kimball, software developer at kingoakproductions.com has been practising his skill for almost 20 years and he’s getting pretty good at it. He is a father to a great 11 year old boy who’s always on the go and keeps him very busy. A true geek at heart he’s always got his hands in something dorky, weather its modding a computer to work in a friend’s car or just adding more HDD space to his T.V. server it’s always a good time in the geek world when he’s around.
In what little spare time he has he hangs out with the family and builds hotrod cars, well he gets his friends to teach him how to build hotrod cars. Cars have been a passion of Andrew’s since he was a boy and finds himself torn between a community of hot-rodder’s that don’t have anything to do with the tech world, and having all the teckis he knows asking him car questions, it’s a wonderful life
